Tooth jewelry, designed as clear, ruby-red, and sapphire-blue glass crystals, adorn smiles of all ages across the globe. Local entrepreneur and former dental assistant, Monika Gruenwald, introduces this growing trend to Santa Barbara with DecoDent tooth jewelry.
People love it. It's temporary, non-invasive and painless, says Ian Wright of Classic Creations in Ontario, Canada. Wright started offering the tooth jewelry service about a year ago and said he now has clients, ranging from preteen to senior citizens, with the temporary jewels.
Santa Barbara City College student, 18-year old Renee Jackson, visited Dr. Gotelli to get a jewel on her tooth. I get compliments from friends and co-workers daily on the tooth jewel and it's cool to literally have a sparkle in my smile, said Jackson. The procedure was completely painless and the jewel takes no extra maintenance. Plus, I can go back to the dentist any time and have the jewel color changed in the future.
DecoDent tooth jewelry by BrilliAnce is manufactured with the highest quality materials and specifically designed for dental use. The stone is set with a primer and a small quantity of adhesive and is placed and aligned within 20 seconds with no drilling or pain. The gems can stay in place from six months to up to three years and can be easily removed at any time by a dentist.
Tooth jewelry creates an exciting opportunity for the fashion industry to cross over into the oral healthcare field, states Santa Barbara dentist Dr. Andrew W. Gotelli. Offering the service in his Santa Barbara office Gotelli continues, I can place a beautiful jewel on the patient's tooth in 15 minutes that is 100% reversible and stain resistant, and has no effect on the tooth once the jewel is removed or replaced.
DecoDent tooth gems are real crystals made of glass and surfaced with a special coat to make them shine like a diamond. Without impeding daily dental care or regular hygienist cleanings, the gems are specially manufactured for dental use and can be easily applied and removed.
I have had nothing but good experiences with the tooth jewels, conveys Wolfgang M. Boer, dentist and secretary general of the German Society for Aesthetic Dentistry. Patients love to enhance the beauty of their teeth and it promotes a stress-free visit to the dentist.
According to a U.S.-based manufacturer, tooth jewelry was patented in 1986 by a European dentist in response to a Swedish singer's demand to put a diamond in her tooth and has since developed into mainstream body art for musical artists and fans alike.
No longer is this latest body art trend only for pop or film celebrities, DecoDent of Santa Barbara offers these shiny tooth gems to local customers and dental offices. The price for the procedure varies depending on size of jewel and dental fees.
